UK Current Affairs Mailing List

Posted by brendanstallard on October 18, 2006

A plug for a nice list.

For many years, there was a lovely, and lively group of folks who would gather at Compuserves UK current affairs forum. It was seriously busy, but mostly happy group, primarily involved with politics vis a vis UK and USA.

Then AOL purchased Compuserve, it was like letting the viruses in turds manage the water treatment plant and quite the maddest decision in the world that year. Anyone who has spent more than five minutes on the web knows that those poor souls with an AOL membership are bereft of something necessary for civilisation and should not be permitted to write or disseminate their thoughts in public.

Eventually, the forum died, not before sterling efforts from Colin, but the new AOL format was too much to take. John Waghorne, through being blind: couldn’t handle all the jiggling about and so opened up a mailing list on YahooGroups.

That mailing list is now going great guns, with expanding membership, and you can join it at:


It’d be good to see you there.
